Who is Junipero Serra? The biography of a soon-to-be Saint
Who is Pope Francis’ new saint?
Pope Francis announced his plan to canonize Bl. Junipero Serra, who he called “the evangelizer of the west”, in January while on board Sri Lankan Air Flight on the way to Manila.
Beatified by St. John Paul II in 1988, the 18th century missionary and Franciscan priest – who worked to defend the native people against the abuses of colonialism – will be canonized by Pope Francis on Sep. 23 during his Apostolic Journey to the United States.
Serra was the missionary who founded the first nine of 21 eventual missions in California. Many of the missions became the centers of major cities like San Diego. He worked tirelessly with the Native Americans, and is said to have baptized more than 6,000 people, and confirmed more than 5,000.
